Karachi: The Ministry of Energy has ruled out a shortage of petroleum products in the country.
The Petroleum Division of the Ministry of Energy said in a statement that Pakistan has ample stocks of petroleum products and there is no danger of shortage. The fall in prices of petroleum products led to a significant increase in sales on May 1 and May 2. On the other hand, petrol pump owners did not buy petroleum products from companies. The country has a stock of 285,000 tonnes of petrol and 350,000 tonnes of diesel, the energy ministry said in a statement.
The current stock is enough to meet the demand for the next 15 days. Two ships carrying petrol and diesel for PSO have reached Port Qasim. The ships have brought 50,000 tonnes of petrol and 55,000 metric tonnes of diesel. The ministry has appealed to the people not to buy more petroleum products than required. The Ministry of Energy and the Petroleum Division are active in meeting Pakistan's energy needs.
